A couple of months ago I embarked on a very pleasant weekend trip to Parknasilla, in Co Kerry. (I wrote about it in the paper here.) I don’t think I’ve ever been to a place I loved as much as I loved Parknasilla, and that is not me sucking up to the guys at Host PR who did such a great job of, er, hosting us.

It has a gloriously old-school vibe, where the front-of-house staff knew your name as soon as you walked in the door, the bar staff remembered your drinks order and one of the waiters had been working there for more than 40 years. It also has an outdoor hot tub, great spa treatments, the softest pillows in the world . . . etc. If you’re after a relaxing break in Ireland, I would highly recommend it. Take a look at a few of my snaps, if you need proof.

Checking out the fairy trail (yes, really).
